    He looks nothing like the CGI model. Well, except for the head.

    I'm assuming that means the KSI Sentry is also out - they're in the same assortment.

    Anytime I order something online it shows up in stores before mine is delivered. So really, anyone looking for this figure at retail can thank me for ordering one from Amazon :D

    Yeah this Dropkick if a total fail. It might even look more screen accurate if you put the Dropkick head on KSI sentrys body, and thats sad. But since Hasbro has to milk the molds, I forsee a redeco/retool of Shatter in Dropkick colors with the Dropkick. Hopefully they retool it nicely in both modes. I honestly dont give a s**t about the jet and coptor modes. They should have been Stunticons instead of triple changers. And Blitzwing should have had his buddy Astrotrain instead. I mean cmon...1980s and Space Shuttles are synonymous in my opinion.

    Come to think of it...I did not see any KSI Sentries... but I suppose someone else could have grabbed them before I got there.

    There were 2 Dropkicks ...a Bee and several Jazz. Will also note it looked like a small tornado hit the toy isles so I could have missed seeing them.

    Could be the same thing as some retailers (or wholesalers) not carrying Shodow Raider and DOTM Ratchet, perhaps out of expectation that repaints won't sell and but making a point of stocking VW Bumblebee and Dropkick due to their association with the upcoming movie.

    Darn, I found both DropKick and the KSI Sentry at the same store LAST NIGHT, and didn't think anything about it. I guess I missed out on a news credit. EEP.

    By the way KSI sentry is short packed to 1 per case so that will make it hard for people to army build them.

    This is the wave 4 case breakdown for anyone is wondering.

    3x Dropkick
    2x VW Bumblebee
    1x KSI Sentry
    1x Jazz
    1x DOTM Ratchet

    That will also make it hard for people who just want one.

    Honestly, the only figure in this wave that I care about is Dropkick. I don’t like the figures of Shadow Raider or KSI Sentry, sinc they look nothing like their onscreen counterparts and are knonestly just annoyingly random choices on Hasbro’s part.
